    Hello folks! Star Wars News Net started out as a blog only, and then as it evolved, became a "News AND chat" place for all things Star Wars.

    As the base staff is as rounded as possible in all blog and forum matters, there was never enough Staff Members to be everywhere at once, and as the forum perpetually grew there became a need for a separate unit of folks to concentrate on all matters of the forum specifically.

    We would like you to know your Forum Moderators! :)

    Hi @Addi Ras here or James IRL I first came to SWNN as I was initially looking for somewhere that had good information TFA & then I found the Cantina & so after lurking for a couple of days & seeing how friendly the community was here I joined up & this place has become a rather large part of my life & I have made some great friends here.

    A little about my life outside the Cantina well Iam a original OT guy having seen both ESB & ROTJ at my local Odeon cinema & then started getting as meny of the figures & ships as I could I still have a large proportion of that collection though none are in there packaging & most of there accessories are missing my favourites were the Death Star Gunner & TIE Pilot figures & B Wing was my favourite ship.

    My loves outside Star Wars are food the more unusual the better though Seafood is a particular love & Wine & Whiskey & I have a rather nice collection amassed over the years.

    As for work well at the moment Iam working in retail a couple of days a week.

    Oh & I got my user name from the Secret Cinema showing of ESB I got to attend as a birthday present a couple of years ago.

    What-ho, what-ho, what-ho!

    Like most everybody here, I've been a fan since childhood. I'm number 5 of a family with seven kids, so I've never gone a day without not knowing Star Wars... so that's kinda nice.
    Besides my interest in our favorite far away galaxy, I am also a huge fan of the British science-fiction series Doctor Who, and many other British shows and what not. P.G Wodehouse is a huge inspiration in my life, both his novels and the shows/films based off his work.

    Anyway, enough about boring entertaining things, I'm also an actor. I've been studying and performing pretty much my whole life. My first performance was at the DAR Constitution Hall in Washington D.C. when I was five years old, and that love of performing has stuck with me. I've written a little as necessary, directed a wee bit, but my first love is and always will be acting. Hopefully one day you'll see me on screen!

    I greatly enjoy history of all sorts: Fictional, national, Biblical, cinema... etc. etc. etc. List goes on. It's all fun and fascinating.

    And that's it for now. I don't want to keep rambling and bore you to tears. Take care, and see you 'round the forums!

    Hello, all. BB-Rey here. Star Wars has been part of me since seeing The Phantom Menace when I was really young in 1999. Not long after I saw the Original Trilogy and I have loved it ever since. I am beyond grateful to George Lucas as without him I'd probably never have become interested in cinema or have the aspirations I do of becoming a filmmaker. It won't be too much longer and I'll be off like Rey going on adventures except unlike her I'll be studying Film and Literature Studies at university in England or maybe that's Takodana with hopes to find my way within the film industry or possibly as a teacher.

    Apart from this I have a great many interest but not limited to psychology as I enjoy learning about human nature, theatre as it's also been part of me since I was really young and something I am grateful my Grandparents involved me in as it has brought forth my creativity, fashion as I enjoy seeing all the ways designers express themselves, camping as I enjoy the outdoors, and football. You'll find me supporting Chelsea on any given Saturday during the season and Lionesses during international duties.

    I don't remember how I discovered SWNN and The Cantina but, I am grateful that I did as it's a truly great community here and I am privileged to have the opportunity I do to be a mod and to have my story about Darth Plagueis be published on the main site. Even if it was all by accident I find, it has served a great purpose for me. Here's hoping to many more great stories to come in the Star Wars universe!

    Hello fellow Cantina members.

    I'm going to tell you a bit about myself. My love for Star Wars started the first time I watched ANH on its second or third release in theaters. I remember being in awe of everything. Especially with Luke and the lightsabers. Just imaging as a little kid of having a "cool" weapon like that and being able to "do" things with your mind. Pretty cool power, huh? My favorite SW movie keeps going back and forth between Empire and ANH followed by ROTS. I'm also a Walking Dead fan and in sports, it's the Colts and Pacers.

    I've been here in The Cantina since day one, as I was a follower of StarWars7news.com and now SWNN. I came across SWNN on the day that Disney bought Lucasfilm looking for anything about the transaction or for the upcoming movies. This site stood out among the rest for whatever reason and I've been a loyal member and follower since. I remember for the first few days back then no one ever commented on the blog and look how far it has come now. This is the BEST place to get your SW news, IMO.

    That's it for me and I'll c-ya around The Cantina. MTFBWY!!

    Hello there!

    Well, I gotta start by saying two years ago I didn't care as much about Star Wars. As a matter of fact I hadn't seen the OT at all - knew the basics of course but had not seen the OT movies. And same like Rey, it seemed like the Force awakened on me when a month and a half before the premiere I decided to do a Star Wars marathon and things changed. And this is what I love about the Star Wars fandom and the Cantina: we all come from different backgrounds, we might have started loving Star Wars from our childhood or just a week ago, but our love for the saga unites us.

    Back then, I was so hyped I would browse any piece of info about Star Wars and found this forum. It has been such an amazing experience to speculate and engage in civilised discussions about all the aspects from the saga we all love. And from there I became a mod and also a guest contributor on SWNN - here is actually my first guest editorial on how I became a fan.

    No need to say who is my favourite character of the saga - my avatar and username can easily give me away - but it was actually Rey's Halloween costume two years ago that took me into Star Wars, and been wearing it in cosplay and charity events.

    I'm big into the books and comics, also love Rebels and TCW and of course the movies. I'm also a Game of Thrones fan, started back in the day as a Potterhead too and in sports, my teams are the Patriots, Real Madrid, Manchester United, the Rockets and the Astros. I'm an Engineer, but also an aspiring writer and a singer.

    Welcome to this amazing community! May the Force be with you always!

    Hello, folks! I'm the scotch guy.

    While most of you here know me as Alamact, sometimes colloquially referred as the Rear Admiral, I suppose it was time to formally introduce myself.

    My name is Chris Miller, and if there ever was a fictional universe that defined my childhood growing up, it would most certainly be Star Wars. As somewhat of a notorious forum lurker among my friends, I've never truly had a desire to actively engage with the debates and the community of internet message boards. I felt like the opinions I held were never absent in those discussions - and as a person who hates redundancy, expressing my thoughts often felt redundant and circular.

    What changed? To put it bluntly: I found an avenue where I could contribute to the community in a way that was distinctive and indispensable - that avenue being the Old Republic Paint Adventures. I will not trouble you with the details here, but I would be remiss if I failed to mention how proud I was of the people that banded around it and the talented individuals that call the thread their home.

    To this day, the Cantina remains the only forum I've ever had an active account on, and it is very likely this will remain so. The community here is something truly special, as trite as that statement tends to be, and when I was offered the chance to play an active role in preserving the strength of our community - I knew deep down that it was pointless to resist.

    Thus, without any further pomp and circumstance, I hope you are enjoying your time on the Cantina to the utmost of your ability, and I will see you all around the boards.
